Mom got a new toy for Christmas.
She's been wanting one of these forever,
so her and dad splurged as a gift to each other.
First project:: BAGELS!
Mom has one every morning for breakfast.
First they mixed.
Then they shaped. They've got to work on shaping.
These look crazy.
On to boiling. That makes the bagel chewy,
and the ONLY way to make bagels.
Getting ready to bake.
Arnie and I helped during the whole process.
They wouldn't have tasted so good without our help.
Yup, those are snowmen towels on the stove.
Those suckers are everywhere.
Rotating during baking.
Definitely gotta work on getting more consistent cranberries.
Coming out of the oven.
Hurry up - I need a bagel!!!!
There they are, cooling off.
Finally, we can taste test.
Nom, nom, nom - the Arnie/Gracie stamp of approval.
